Dear Colleagues,

The ICA Commission on Location-Based Services <> is 
currently starting an initiative to develop a cross-cutting research 
agenda for the field of Location-Based Services (LBS), aiming to 
identify key research questions and challenges that are essential for 
the LBS development in the next 5 or 10 years.

*The details of the initiative are available here at:*

As a first step in this process, we invite all interested parties to 
write a one paragraph proposal to describe what they believe are the 
“big problems” that should be addressed to bring LBS research into a 
higher level.

The commission chairs together with several invited experts will then 
examine, classify, and group these proposals, and provide a first list 
of "key problems". The list will be circulated to the LBS research 
community, and we will then invite everyone to write a one-page position 
paper to further develop cross-cutting research directions and plans 
toward these “key problems”.

*Important Dates:*

  * *15 July 2016,* deadline for one paragraph proposals of "big
    problems" in LBS. Please submit your proposal here
  * *20 August 2016,* publication of the selected "key problems" on the
    commission website
  * *1 October 2016,* deadline for expression of interest in writing a
    one-page position paper
  * *1 November 2016,* deadline for one-page position papers

We are exploring the possibility of having a workshop, preceding the LBS 
2016 in Vienna, <> to discuss these position 
papers and the cross-cutting research directions.

Please feel free to distribute the information to your network and 
contacts. Everyone is invited to join and contribute!

We are looking forward to your one-paragraph proposal by 15 July 2016!
